Dislocation Dance | The Ruins Of Manchester/Cromer

Brand new album by the indiepop pioneers from Manchester who recorded for New Hormones and Rough Trade, and were favourites of the late John Peel. Dislocation Dance formed in Manchester in late 1978 with a core line-up of Ian Runacres, Paul Emmerson, Kathryn Way, Dick Harrison and Andy Diagram. After making their live debut at the celebrated Factory Club, the band released a series of inventive, eclectic jazz-tinged pop records on New Hormones, including the albums Slip That Disc! and Music Music Music. The band changed to Rough Trade for their third long player, Midnight Shift, but sadly the original group split in 1984.
In 2000 the band was reformed by Runacres for a Japanese tour, and released its fourth album in 2005. Now the group have recorded a brand new album, The Ruins of Manchester, issued with the overlooked Cromer, from 2005, included as a bonus disc. "Both albums call upon personal history," explains Runacres. "Cromer evokes childhood summers on the Norfolk coast, while Ruins reflects an affection for a pre-renaissance, pre-90s investment Manchester."
